hardships, create chaos. for example, if you take a look at the hispanic vote in texas, it's been closed down by gerrymandering, to where hispanics have almost no input in the political process. the next step is to do that same thing with minorities of all kinds. the poor, with students, with the elderly. what you're seeing them do is this. it's a -- if you go state to state, this is the same pattern. allow fewer voting stations in certain places. allow very fewer voting attendants to be at the voting stations. make the convenience issue almost impossible, to where people don't want to show up to vote. what we see is we see situations where their intent is to create chaos. to keep people away from -- >> these advocates that are out there fighting for voters' rights, what can they do at this point? >> well, the 1965 voting rights act is a strong act, ed. it's been ignored for too long. as a matter of fact, three years ago, the u.s. justice department was told that this pattern was taking place. what i like about the act, lbj pushed this act through. you know what he did, ed? he said, we d

that have been afforded and throw it back to state control. for example, lawrence v. texas is a great example. he wants the state of texas to basically make being gay illegal if they want to. and we hope there's a higher court, the supreme court that will stop that from happening under a ron paul presidency. >> yeah. this is pretty much in the context of paul trying to disavow other extreme positions in these newsletters years ago that are now dogging his campaign. paul wants to be bold, but he also seems to attract, you know, a fringe element that's out there. and it is out in iowa. the guy does have support. he's getting massive crowds compared to the other candidates. what do you make of all of this? >> well, i think a lot of it is pretty kind of crazy marketing. because what he's really hoping for is a kind of reconstructionist growth where christian law and the bible are what become one law with the civil law. it's interesting. these are the guys who screamed the most about the infringement of sharia law supposedly coming to our country, but what they want, or what michele bachma

didn't know about the content but reports from texas newspapers in the mid-90s paint a very different picture. according to the houston chronicle in 1996, paul said his comments on blacks contained in the news letters should be viewed in the context of current events and statistical reports of the time. newt gingrich, the guy who says he's running a positive campaign is ready to pounce on a wounded ron paul. >> he's attacking me for serial hypocrisy and he spent earning money for ten years out of a news letter he didn't know. he has to come up with straight answers to get somebody to take him seriously. >> so with one week to go, this is where the republican party finds itself. the inability of the party to get behind one or even two candidates has left them with an uncertain situation heading into the final stretch before the first vote is cast. they better hope 2012 doesn't turn out the way 2011 ended. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. tonight's question, who will win in iowa next week? one week out, that's our question tonight. text a for mitt romney,

, and that is texas governor rick perry hanging on to the support he now has." it is a fight between those social conservatives to see who they're going to support. what do you make of it? >> well, i think that what rick santorum has done is started consolidating the votes of the religious conservatives. they were the folks who gave mike huckabee his big victory four years ago. he hasn't cleat lycompletely consolidated them. rick perry spent a lot of money, worked hard in the state and probably run the most christian campaign since the reverend pat robertson back in 1988. so i think a lot will depend on what happens in evangelical churches this sunday. i think the drift is toward santorum. he has a lot of support from, important support from evangelical leaders. if he can consolidate that, take it away from perry, he could actually threaten ron paul and mitt romney. and that's why perry has gone negative on him. as you mentioned at the beginning of the show. perry knows he's in a dog fight with santorum for third place now but also to see if either of them can get in contention. >> m
